We’ve picked our blue, at least for this coat (we may go a different direction with the pro paint job later). I’ll be picking up some Nason Blue Metallic (400-44) tonight for the belly of our fuselage, and maybe some winglet highlights (the rest is “snow white 471-44″). Our paint scheme features this sort of blue long term, and having a little color will make the Fox seem more finished for the (couple?) years she flys in temporary colors. I’m told that the metallic shouldn’t be much harder to spray, except that we should go very light and plan on at least four coats. This is the only stock dark blue in the Nason line, and buying stock is cheaper, so it’s a good fit. Also, spraying the bottom a different color makes the process easier since we don’t have to pick it up, put it down, and try to keep a wet line.We might even get our mascot for the nose in vinyl.
